Girls More Likely Than Boys To Be Cyberbullied

The "mean girls" stereotype isn't as true as you might think.

According to new research, boys are more likely to report being instigators of mean or cruel online behaviour, while girls are more likely to have mean things said about them.

37 percent of young people surveyed reported that someone has done something cruel to them online that made them feel badly and 11 percent of students called it a serious problem. 

While boys were just as likely to spread online rumours as girls. girls were more likely than boys to post an embarrassing photo or video.
